Cabling CAT 5-6
We can provide CAT5 and CAT6 cabling for your data needs. If you need advice on data, telephone or wireless networks and cabling then you can chat to our friendly team that are here to help you.
CAT5E is the most recent specification of CAT5 Cable. It is a twisted pair cable for carrying data supporting gigabit ethernet networking speeds of up to 1GB/s.
CAT6 can offer communication speeds of up to double that of CAT5. It has a much higher frequency signal and a much higher bandwidth is supported. There is very limited interference between the wires inside the cable known as crosstalk. CAT6 provides 10 gigabit ethernet allowing vastly more network traffic than CAT5E.
